Trish Morrissey


Originally from Dublin, Ireland, I have lived in England since the early 1990s. I worked as an editorial photographer in London before taking my MA in 2001, when I changed my direction to personal projects and exhibitions. Since then I have worked and exhibited extensively around the world. Most recent solo and two person shows were at Bohuslans Museum, Sweden (2016), Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne (2010), and Impressions Gallery Bradford, UK (2009). Some recent group shows were Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK, 2015, Palazzo Strozzi, Florence, Italy (2014), Glucksman Gallery in Cork, Ireland (2013) and the Perth Institute for Contemporary Arts, Australia (2012). My work is in the permanent collection of The Gösta Serlachius Fine Art Foundation, Finland, The Museum of Fine Art, Houston, USA, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, The National Media Museum, Bradford UK and the Wilson Centre for Photography, London. My work is included in several survey publications, most notably, 'The Photograph as Contemporary Art' by Charlotte Cotton, (Thames and Hudson, 2005) 'Vitamin Ph, Survey of International Contemporary Photography,' (Phaidon 2006), 'Auto Focus: The Self-Portrait in Contemporary Photography', by Susan Bright (Thames and Hudson 2010), and Photography and Ireland by Justin Carville, published by Exposures 2012. I am artist in residence for 2017 at Hestercombe Gallery, Somerset, UK. I have been commissioned to make a solo show there in November this year.
